Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge starting to arrive


The long awaited update to Nougat has begun for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, with users who participated in the Samsung beta program for the update reporting a 215MB update being received on their phones.

According to SamMobile, the update is only hitting beta users at the moment however all users will receive the update eventually. The Nougat update brings a host of new features that we’ve seen in previous leaks including a new user interface. The update includes the latest security patch (1st of January), but still remains at Android 7.0 instead of the more recent 7.1.1.

The update to Nougat is coming for the S7/S7 edge, however anyone with a carrier sourced phone here in Australia still has some time to wait. Vodafone is showing the most up to date information with their software update page listing the status of the update as ‘Issues found during testing, awaiting new software from Samsung’. Optus and Telstra don’t list the Nougat update as in testing at this stage, but will probably change in the next update.

If you’re wanting a taste of Nougat on your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, then it will soon be here but you’ll just have to wait a little longer.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

What about those on an XSA unbranded S7/S7E? Should hit those first right?

Going on history from previous Samsung phones, the XSA release comes around the same time as the first carrier to release it (typically Vodafone).

Also last year Optus got a week or two on Vodafone with the marshmallow update.

Agree with Will. I don’t recall any XSA update that didn’t correspond to one of the Telco versions. Even wroth an unbranded version we are still at the will of the big 3 and their “approval”.

No

I cant say for certain what patch they are up to at this moment but the XSA usually has it weeks before especially if you look at the security patches.
